Books Read in 2014

Untitled

Whew! Finally posting my final list! I think I definitely succeeded in my 50 books goal this year, haha. Audiobooks have completely changed my life – especially by providing a worthy distraction from the horrible drivers of DC!

My favorites from 2014 were “The Night Circus” by Erin Morgenstern and “The Martian” by Andy Weir. Loved them both resoundingly for almost opposite reasons, actually: The Night Circus is whimsical and magical and everything I love about well-written characters and worlds, while The Martian is science and facts and still memorable characters – in our very real world. I will be re-reading them both for years to come.

Here’s to a year of great reading in 2015!
